Blade and Bow 22 Year Old, is said to deliver notes of toasted oak, vanilla bean, figs and dark caramel on the nose. Followed by notes of torched sugar, apples baked, honey and spices on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Meghan Redler, Brand Manager for Blade and Bow, said: "We are honored to call the Stitzel-Weller Distillery home to Blade and Bow bourbons, and to play a part in preserving the careful craftsmanship and unique artistry that was established and perfected within these walls. Releasing Blade and Bow 22-Year-Old this year during Bourbon Heritage Month allows us to pay homage to this historic distillery with our finest liquid."
